Came upon this recipe just this morning, and it made me miss Marion so much. I love her language: “This will now look like a bowl full of lumps.”
Trying to remember why I’d asked Marion for a cake recipe, it hit me that I wanted to make cupcakes to send to Nick’s class for what might have been the last day of first grade. Or maybe it was for a simple cake for Michael’s birthday. Can’t remember.
But looking at it now, it strikes me as the perfect recipe for this time of year. Kumquats are just appearing in the market. And so I will ignore Marion’s advice and go for the kumquats.
